Shepway & District Bowls Association (S.& D.B.A.) was founded in 1973* and oversees the running, management and organisation of League Fixtures, Competitions and Annual Events for ten member-clubs in south-east Kent.
Bowlers compete as individuals, or team-members representing their clubs.
Participation in Association Events is additional to normal Club domestic fixtures and competitions.

*Although our clubs joined together in 1973, they all have their own beginnings spread over many years.
One club has a possible claim of 1587! The most recent club was founded in 1972.

Beginners and social members are welcome at all clubs.
Various social activities continue at most clubs when the outdoor bowling season finishes.
